Travels 300 km up the Mekong River, above Phnom Penh but believed to reproduce only in marine waters. Feeds on fishes and swims well upstream river because of easy food availability (Ref. 12693). No information on biology available (Ref. 9684). It is a prized food fish in Japan and probably in China as well. Utilized fresh, dried or salted and smoked; consumed pan-fried, broiled and baked (Ref. 9987).
